Say Wat Records have to be one of the most impressive local labels so far this year. With their release catalogue featuring artists such as TJR, Mike Metro, Benson, Yasumo, Stevie Mink; it's no surprise that 'You're My Excuse' is another must have for your CD collection. Available now for digital purchase [here] I'd have to say that the Prince Club techno remix is a real stand out for me & will definitely get a few plays over the coming weeks.

HandsDown: It's my all time favourite song by a band called dashboard confessional; it's been tattooed on my hands for ages so it kind of seemed fitting.
How did come to start DJing?
HandsDown: I've always been around music; played in hardcore bands that sort of thing.. I played drums for a long time growing up so I was always going to be curious.
What has been your favourite gig so far?
HandsDown: Easily the show I played in New Zealand; place vibed harder than I've ever experienced.
What can people expect to hear from one of your sets?
HandsDown: Death electro, dubstep, wild mixing and sweaty bitches.
Who's your favourite DJ/Producer at the moment?
HandsDown: Haezer for sure; his stuff is always off the charts. Locally your ol' lady and Trumpdisco.
What's the first song that pops into your head when you think 'Getting Tropical' and why?
HandsDown: Getting friendly with Thailand she men?
What plans do you have for HandsDown in the future?
HandsDown: A whole lot more dub gigs with the AllCityBass and riot guys. As well as Trashbags/Zoolandtrash parties, hoping to head back to Sydney and NZ too. Also just inked a deal with Threds clothing up in Brisbane so heading up there in August so looking forward to that.
What's your favourite memory of a live gig you've seen?
HandsDown: Booka Shade - no doubt.
